MINOCQUA - A group of wanna-be Brewers players sharpened their skills at a baseball camp.
Lakeland Union is doing its annual baseball camp each Sunday in the spring.
The camp today was just about hitting technique.
Some kids like 10-year-old Ethan Seeliger come to the camp every year.
"[The camp is] very good, very educational for kids. If you want to play baseball, you come here every Sunday and you learn baseball, it's really good for you," said Seeliger.
One of the things he's learning is his 'knocking knuckles'.
Lakeland junior Bryce Gilbertson is one of the high school players that helps teach the younger kids.
"It's good giving back to the community. I remember coming out and doing this when I was little and we got snowed in all the time and we'd come in and do this. It's cool being on the other side of it now," said Gilbertson.
The camp has been going on for over 10 years now. The money raised goes back to the high school baseball program.
MADISON (AP) - \Wisconsin dairy farmers have broken their streak of year-over-year production increases.
The U.S. Department of Agriculture says Wisconsin farmers produced about 2.5 billion pounds of milk last month, down 0.6 percent from 2017.
Bob Cropp is a professor emeritus at the University of Wisconsin-Madison. He tells Wisconsin Public Radio that the slowdown in production is good for milk prices. Prices have been low for three straight years because of an abundance of milk on the market.
The USDA report says there were 5,000 fewer cows in the state compared to last year.
Darin Von Ruden is president of the Wisconsin Farmers Union. He says farms that remained open faced cold and snowy conditions this spring.
Cropp says some experts believe milk prices may reach $17 per 100 pounds by November.
BEAVER DAM (AP) - Wisconsin Democratic voters are getting nervous over their large field of candidates running for governor.
The primary isn't until Aug. 14. No one has emerged as the clear front-runner ahead of next weekend's state convention. And no one is showing signs of dropping out.
Meanwhile, Republican Gov. Scott Walker is stockpiling resources and is in the middle of a $1.4 million TV ad campaign where he's run three ads unopposed touting his record.
Democrat Denise Hutchison, of Green Bay, says she hopes the field will narrow. She's optimistic that may happen after this weekend's state Democratic Party convention. But she also thinks whoever wins the primary will get the full support of Democratic voters.
